SSG Seminar Abstract

Optimal Mass Transport and Image Registration

Steve Haker
Surgical Planning Lab, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School

We present elastic image registration methods based on the Monge - Kantorovich problem of optimal mass transport. We demonstrate the mapping of volumetric medical data sets such as those obtained from MR and CT. In addition, we show how area-preserving surface warpings may be obtained using this approach.
